Last month, the American Geosciences Institute ran a webinar entitled “Tracking the Global Supply of Critical Materials.”
Speakers for the event, which discussed “efforts to gather information and develop tools that can be used to ensure a secure national and global supply of mineral resources, and identify and quantifying vulnerabilities in this supply, among others,” included:
- Nedal Nassar, Chief of the Materials Flow Analysis Section at the USGS’s National Minerals Information Center, and
- Vitor Correia, President of the European Federation of Geologists, and coordinator of the EU’s INTRAW project.
If you missed it, the video and supporting documents are now online:
Of particular interest for ARPN followers, Mr. Nassar, who authored a study on the issue of what he and his co-author Prof. Thomas Graedel called “byproduct metals” in 2015, also highlighted the crucial nature and inter-relationship between Gateway Metals and their Co-Products.
The video and slides serve as a great resource for stakeholders looking to engage in the national policy discourse over the formulation of a federal action plan to implement the recent executive order on critical minerals.
